Editorial Reviews

Review

"A haunting, harrowing story of civil war, a gut-wrenching account of how neighbour can turn on neighbour and how easily and brutally lives can be devastated, written by someone who actually lived it." - Raymond Khoury, New York Times bestselling author of The Last Templar

"This is a book that gets under your skin, into your head, and won't let go." - Susanna J. Sturgis. Editor, Writer.

"Sawan's real-life novel allows us to see with ironic humanity into a violent world that too few people really understand." - Patricia Keeney, novelist and poet

"An action-packed morality tale set during the Lebanese Civil War. A breathless Bond-ish adventure torn from today's headlines." - Don Rubin, Professor, York University, Toronto

"I was curious to read Al Shabah, I wanted to know how close it is to the truth. The novel details the truth itself. But the descriptions are not normal, I felt like looking through camera movements that detailed and reflected the confrontation between Paul and Bassam, or the clash of cultures between terrorism and murder on the one hand, and the struggle for existence on the other." - Georges Hayek, Journalist, Author.

About the Author

A.E. Sawan was born into a Christian family on the outskirts of Zahle in Lebanon's Bekaa Valley. By the age of 12, he and his family had been forced to move five different times because of the country's shattering civil war (1975 to 1990). Detained and tortured on several occasions by both the Syrian Army and the Palestinian Liberation Army (PLO), he eventually became a counter-terrorist operative specializing in diffusing bombs. Having survived the war, he severed his connections to violence and left Lebanon for Canada.
